How to make your baby and dog love each other

I remember it clearly.
The feeling of knowing that in a couple of months I would have my first human baby.
I say human cause I already had a baby...a furry one, and I loved him with all my heart.
I understand that not everyone sees their pet as their babies, but I do, and I also knew that like me, there were other.
If this is your case, read on.

Five secrets to look younger

We all want to look younger...no one can deny that.
We all want to look fresh, glowy and healthy.
Some say these "looks" come from within depending on how happy you really are.
I think is a combination of this PLUS a few simple tricks I have learned along the way.

1.Fuller Eyebrows

It is a proven fact that eyebrow hair can thin from aging just like scalp hair does. It is a result form years of plucking, rubbing or painting them with pencils and makeup.
Go dig some old photos of yourself when you were a teenager and there is a high chance you had fuller eyebrows and now you don't, either because you repeatedly plucked them because thinner eyebrows were "in" or because they naturally thinned out.
So, I think if you stop plucking them thin...and maybe let them grow fuller you will get a more youthful effect.

Homemade Facial Scrub-n-berries


I had been meaning to make this as fellow blogger Sara from Aqui which is one of my favorite blogs, not only cause she rocks but she also lives in Hawaii and wait, not only that, but she has so many exotic fruits growing in her backyard! (geez, who can blame me for being jealous huh?? :)
She posted a while ago a fruit scrub like this one. I was hesitant at first, since I had already tried it once a few years back and the scrub always ended watery and the sugar dissolving. Then another blogger saved the day and took the time to explain to me step by step! Thanks Amber!

Thanksgiving Ginger & Carrot Soup

Thanksgiving is just around the corner guys!!
Even though I have been living away from my family for almost 8 yrs now, I still cherish this holiday, since it brings me back to those times when my sister and I had to clean the house, and help mom cook the Thanksgiving dinner and have everything set for when the rest of the family arived.

On this holiday I could usually smell Christmas on the air...and the joy of having night of celebrations, board games and amazing comfort food.

I wanted to share a very delicious soup I learned to make a while back.
 I think it could be a great starter for your Thanksgiving dinner, plus it's super easy!!

Delicious Fridge Oats

When I first found out about this healthy snack, I knew immediately I would like it. Oatmeal, yogurt, fruits and granola? Hell yeah! Plus it seemed like very easy to make and thank God it is, cause I spend enough time already in the kitchen now that I
have learned how to bake all kinds of things...but back to the oats, here is the recipe:
1 cup Old Fashioned Oats
1cup of milk
1/2 cup of greek yogurt ( i personally use vanilla flavored)
4 tablespoons of chia seeds
These ratios double if you want to  make more obviously.
Cinammon and little brown sugar are optional yet recommended.
add the fruit of your choice
Mix the ingredients together in a container and leave in the fridge overnight.

When serving, top with granola, raisins or any nuts of your preference.
Something crunchy is highly recommended! ;)

You are welcome!
